Re: 300 Ruger compact magnum or 7mm STW
Between the 300 RCM and the 7mm STW I'd go STW hands down. I don't see the Ruger as having the staying power of the STW, plus the STW is capable of stellar accuracy. I've got three STW's and all three are superbly accurate. One Savage, one Winchester 70 and one custom with a Hart barrel. The custom has a 28" barrel and I'm shooting 168 gr VLD's at 3200 fps with a safe load.
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.
